          Great trip and tour guide
          The experience was great as a first visit to Phuket I highly recommend although it can be a long day we made great memories and was made even better by our tour guide jennifer. Thank you for a great trip.

          Good driver, Mr Somsuk. It took a wee while for him to arrive due to the taxi queue. Will use this service again. Best to contact via email.

          Appalled
          Booked the airport transfer months before our first trip to Phuket particularly as we were arriving in the early hours of the morning. However just hours before ( whilst we were flying there) we received an email worded 'It’s a bummer, but the tour operator for Phuket Airport Transfer (SHA Plus) had to cancel your booking. Good news: a full refund of GBP' Given I hadn't been well on the flight and we had thought we would have someone waiting for us, it didn't make for a pleasant first impression of the country and made for a very stressful situation. It's a pity you can't give a no star rating!

          No hassle airport pickup and drop
          The pickup and drop was timely. Cars were clean and driver was very polite - offered us water as we entered the car. We had some issue with finding the person when we landed in Phuket but that I would attribute to us being a little lost after flying and transiting for 10 hours.

          Long day, but worth it.
          Absolutely amazing! We had the best guide that was so fun to be with. It is a LONG day in the heat but we had the best time. We spent just enough time with the elephants and really enjoyed all parts of the excursion and everything we learned during it.

          Great taxi service.
          Taxi at the airport was smooth. We we're expecting a normal car but we got a mini bus with really comfy seats. Driver was great. Long drive but no issues. At the hotel the driver refused a tip and said no thankyou you have paid. Lovely guy. Mini bus clan and bottled water supplied. Definitely recommend.

          A smooth ride
          The driver was there waiting when we walked out. And he took us right to our hotel in patong in about an hour. The communication is good with the company as well. Bolt could be an option, depending on the time of your arrival.

          The driver was waiting for us at the airport even though we had been delayed by 2+ hours. The vehicle was spotless and air-conditioned. We arrived at our hotel in good time and had a pleasant drive. Would recommend, so much so, we used Mega Tours to return to the airport.

        First the organisation was poor. They arrived an hour earlier than the meeting time. At each place we weren't given an explanation of what to expect or how long/when to meet. The cold drinks were great and a comfortable AC van. The lunch was way too small, Pad Thai or hokkien noodles. The plate had a serving of my palm. The three petite girls from Hong Kong beside me even had to order and pay for another main- glad I had a big breakfast as traffic was horrible and it ended up being a late night. There were a few pointless stops but I'm pleased to say I felt no pressure to make a purchase at the cashew nut factory. If you have nothing better to do then go for it, however, most of the day is spent driving in traffic and you can't even get your bearings of the city anyway.

        The tour times were changed to suit the operator from afternoon to morning. We were crammed into a very uncomfortable bus right at the back, there were too many people on a very small bus and the aircon at the back of the bus didn’t work very welll. I was too far back to hear anything the guide said. When we got to the sites the guide just sat with the driver and told us to walk around on our own. When I asked her about things in the old town she knew nothing about it. The food was nice though and we saw a few things; it was a bus to the sites though not a proper tour. Just because someone can speak English doesn’t make them a tour guide, they should actually know about the places too!

        The experience was little more than sharing a taxi for a day with a driver who knows a bit about the area except you can't control the itinerary.

        The good:

        It was great to see the end of the peninsula and the Big Buddha and the temple. The cultural items were reasonably chosen.

        The small size was nice to get more personable with fellow tourists

        The less than good:

        It took 2 hours to round everyone up before the tour could begin. The pickup is the same as the tour bus (Toyata hiace type large taxi).

        The itinerary was not in the same order as presented here and timing was not understood by the tour guide. For example, when asked tour guide said lunch was at 1pm, but it turns out it was 2:30pm. Lunch was at an open food court seemingly for tourists (nothing cultural or interesting about it).

        The tour was somewhat unstructured. There was no "meet back here at this time" which left the guide constantly shepherding people when moving on and uncertainty with everyone about what's going on. Information was only occasionally presented and the tour guide wasn't able to confidently answer some questions. Further, apparently the guide isn't licensed to guide thru Old Town which was the closing destination of the event.

        The cashew factory "tour" was 2 minutes seeing the shelling of cashews and then immediately into purchase gift shop mode . It was more of a tourist shop than a cashew factory and has dubious justification for inclusion.

        This is a great tour to get to see a lot of Phuket. I was lucky, as I was the alone on my tour and the guide and driver waited for me at the hotel as I had a flight delay getting into Phuket. I was also able to decide what items on the itinerary to skip and they were flexible. I really like the views of the city we got to see as well as shopping in Old Phuket Town. I loved Wat Chalong as well

        The tour was informative, enjoyable and the time spent at each place was sufficient. The price of this tour is VERY reasonable and worth it!
        I usually get bored very easily with these kind of tours but not this one. We didn’t spend too long at any one place. Our guide Mayya explained things in a manner that was not boring. We were provided drinks to keep us hydrated, snacks to keep our energy up and a pretty good lunch option at the end of the tour.
        Wear comfortable shoes and ones that are easy to get on and off as you will have to frequently remove your shoes to go inside the different religious buildings. Your knees and shoulders must also be covered to go inside a lot of these places; the guide lent us wraps so that we were appropriately dressed and didn’t have to spend extra money to comply.

        It started with a little sizzle, because they came half an hour later BUT they did warn us! - due to technical problems with the car - but from then on Jennifer, our guide for the day, was fantastic. Together with John, we made it a very nice day.

        In a minibus with air conditioning we drove the whole day through the peninsula with the necessary explanation about all the places, but also about the history.

        We passed beautiful view points, the visit to the Big Buddha was fascinating and then the passage to the temple also very complete.

        Because we had booked a private tour with the two of us, we also got full attention, with local snacks and tastings.

        We had already eaten delicious starters before we actually went to lunch and the dinner party went on. Tasty suggestions are made at this place where you are served a tasty meal with sides.

        Finally we visited a tea house that had delicious tea and sweets. We were then dropped off at our hotel.

        It was a beautiful, more then half a day with very friendly people. Totally worth the title.

        “Lovely!”
        How appropriate that our guide Maya’s name describes perfectly our 6 hour tour of Phuket.
        Pearls, local fare, cashews, breathtaking temples too “lovely” to attach words, an awe inspiring Big Buddha (monkeys included and not to be missed), and a windmill enhanced sunset that seemed to grant every wish we made during our excursion.
        Our driver was prompt, professional and personable and our guide Maya was perhaps as informative and entertaining as any we have had during our worldly travels. This would not have been the memorable adventure it was without Maya.
        I was told that the surrounding small islands are named after what they look like to the Thai people.
        So was this excursion. So was Maya.
        Lovely !

        The tour took too long, longer than what the tour guide said at the start. He told me that I will be dropped off at my hotel by 7:00pm, I was actually dropped off at 9:30pm. I feel the trip to the cashew factory was unnecessary and seemed like a way for your company to earn some commission from the business. The items for sale there were very highly priced and we spent more than an hour there.

        We had a wonderful 1/2 day seeing highlights of Phuket. We started in old town with our fabulous guide giving us history and culture of the old town area, and we had fabulous food at one of the local restaurants. Then our tour included a visit to the cashew factory, Buddhist temple, Big Buddha, and finished watching the sunset at a great spot to see it. We appreciated the small group tour with only 10 people. And our guide did a wonderful job at making sure we were comfortable with a variety of refreshments. He was also very volunteering to take pictures for you, great pictures I might add! This is a great tour for seeing Phuket highlights!!
